Good Beautiful Things

The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.” If this little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic negative self-talk is — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

Through my own experiences fighting Fat Talk, I’ve realized the power behind an anonymous act such as Operation Beautiful. When I post a note, I’m saying, “I CHOOSE to be positive!”
I began Operation Beautiful by leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store. I scribble down whatever comes to mind — "You are beautiful!" or "You are amazing just the way you are!" My personal goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.

So to all my sweet readers and those who just came across this blog, you are beautiful every day!
I think I may leave a post it in the ladies room of my work, good random place!

  2. This is so great! Every so often I engage in a little fat talk, but I really try and avoid it... It really makes you feel better, just in general!

    I'll give you the hookup if you're ever in Cleveland or Las Vegas, but you have to promise to hook me up if I'm in Houston! Deal? :D
